Overview

The aquacultured Green Favia Coral is a gorgeous green color variety of the popular LPS (large polyp stony) coral often referred to as Moon, Pineapple, Brain, Closed Brain, Star, Worm, or Honeycomb Coral. Favia Brain Corals are the most common and prolific coral in the world and are very similar in general appearance to the genus Favites. As it shares many of the same common names, it is sometimes very confusing differentiating the two. Though Favia Corals are found in various color forms and polyp shapes, they can be "easily" distinguished from Favites corals by examining the corallites. Each Favia corallite produces individual walls while corallites of Favites corals share common walls that create a honeycomb appearance. In addition, the corallite walls of Favites corals are generally more raised and tend to be more uneven, accentuating the geometric appearance of the Favites corals.

Care of the aquacultured Green Favia Coral is relatively easy, making it an excellent choice for the beginner to expert hobbyist. The aquacultured Green Favia Coral requires moderate lighting achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, the aquacultured Green Favia Coral will benefit from the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium and trace elements to the water column.

The aquacultured Green Favia Coral is aggressive, expanding its sweeper tentacles at night well beyond the base, potentially stinging other species of corals and animals within reach. Therefore, it is important to leave ample space between the aquacultured Green Favia Coral and neighboring corals.

The photosynthetic symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within the aquacultured Green Favia Coral satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements. However, the aquacultured Green Favia Coral will benefit from supplemental feedings in the form of micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp fed twice per week in the evening while its tentacles are visible.
